New Exceptional Children Teachers Join NCCAT for Program

Through experiential learning, teachers recently explored differentiated instruction, brain-compatible teaching, co-teaching, student advocacy, small group facilitation, and more while at NCCAT.

CULLOWHEE—Teachers from across North Carolina took part in “New to the Exceptional Children’s Classroom: Surviving and Thriving” in Cullowhee June 25–29 at the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching, a recognized national leader in professional development programming for teachers.

Exceptional Children (EC) teachers have all of the traditional needs of beginning teachers, plus a lot more—and often those additional needs incur the greatest need for support. This program was open to teachers in their first, second or third year of EC teaching.

Through experiential learning, teachers explored differentiated instruction, brain-compatible teaching, co-teaching, student advocacy, small group facilitation and more.

“It was an amazing program,” RueAnne White of Holly Grove Elementary in the Wake County School District said. “I am leaving with ideas and things I can use right away in my classroom. The collaboration and time here was very valuable.”
